Kelly Clarkson is set to make her return to the show that launched her career when she performs on American Idol next week.

The 'Dark Side' singer will be performing a brand new song on the US competition's results show next Thursday (11th April).

Kelly is expected to perform new song 'People Like Us' when she makes her return to American Idol, after being the show's first winner way back in 2002.
